"I would like to comment on the Dec. 28 News editorial, 'Credible action in Albany.' If the governor and State Legislature were serious about public safety, they would abolish the Sullivan Act and bring New York law in line with other states like Pennsylvania and Ohio, which allow ordinary people to carry a concealed handgun so they can protect themselves. ..."

"Meanwhile, legislators in Albany continue to defy common sense by thinking that violent thugs with felony rap sheets a mile long will obey new tougher laws against 'illegal' guns. Other states don't export their guns to us. New York imports thugs from other states, who know liberals are working hard to perpetuate an environment where they can ply their trade with little fear ..."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A robbery suspect is in the hospital after attempting to steal from an Elkhart County business.

At around 12:30 Monday afternoon a teenager tried to rob the Media Madhouse store on U.S. 20.

The teen walked into the store and pointed a gun at an employee.

A second employee told the robber he would meet his demands. Instead, he took a gun from behind the counter and shot him in the chest.

The robbery suspect was later dropped off at Elkhart General Hospital for treatment. There's no word on the extent of his injuries.

Elkhart County Police are investigating the robbery.

"Akron's The Beacon Journal is reporting that an ex-convict is being sought for the killing of a church cleaning woman whose body was found in the men's restroom before Sunday services." ...

"This story suggests that this was an apparent random act by a convicted felon in a place where explicit permission to carry a handgun for self defense must be obtained. Under current Ohio law, CHL-holders are banned from attending worship services (or even entering the church building) while armed, unless the church authorizes entry."

"Most multiple victim public shootings take place where guns are banned. ..."

"Perhaps it's time to stop listening to the gun ban extremists who convinced the Ohio legislature to add this provision to the concealed carry law."

... "Each time a woman living in our midst suffers a violent death at the hands of a husband or lover ('Police arrest husband after trying to save wife,' Register-Guard, Dec. 24), we all lose."

"In November, Kelly filed a restraining order against her estranged husband. In her petition, Kelly wrote that her husband had access to a rifle and a shotgun: 'There are two loaded guns in the house and I'm afraid he might use them.'"

"Tragically, prophetically, Kelly also wrote: '(The) shotgun is loaded.' One month later, a loaded gun would be the instrument of her death." ...

Edward Skyler, a spokesman for the mayor, said Mr. Bloomberg would announce the specifics of his anti-gun campaign in the coming weeks.

"Some incidents, such as the December 26 shootings on a crowded downtown Toronto street that left a 15-year-old girl dead and six others wounded beg for a response from all levels of government. When one of these governments is in the middle of an election campaign, it is easy to label statements that are made or actions undertaken as simply playing politics for electoral gain. Keeping that caveat in mind, the federal Liberals went way over the top in exploiting what will be forever known in the history of the city, once known as Toronto the Good, as the 'Boxing Day shootings'." ...

"While blaming America for our problems may make us feel smug, those who point their fingers elsewhere prevent Toronto's decline from being reversed. Our problems are very much domestic in origin, and trying to fault foreigners only delays solving them."

"Much of the blame has been placed on America's 'export of guns' to our country."

"Gardaí are confident that more than 3,000 illegal firearms and over 70,000 rounds of ammunition will be netted in advance of tough new anti-gun laws due to come into force before the summer."

"Under the Criminal Justice Bill, automatic penalties for weapons offences will include minimum jail terms of between five and 10 years."

"That should concentrate the minds of people who hold illegal weapons such as disused firearms, shotguns, hunting rifles or old military equipment. Generally speaking, they would be glad to avail of the month-long amnesty." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Two men have been seriously wounded in a double shooting outside an east London nightclub.

Police were called to the Palace Pavilion nightclub in Hackney's Lower Clapton Road in Hackney shortly before 6.30am on Monday.

A 25-year-old victim is said to be in a critical condition and a 19-year-old is stable.

Officers from Operation Trident, which deals with gun crime in the black community, are investigating.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called at 6.28am to a shooting outside the Palace Pavilion nightclub in Lower Clapton Road.

"Two men suffered gunshots wounds and were taken by London Ambulance Service to hospital.

"Police are keeping an open mind regarding motive at this early stage in the investigation."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
